Did you know an American Quart is smaller than an English one?  So it would presumably require less effort.

Q:  What's grey and comes in pints?

A:  An elephant.

Interrogative, naturally.  Just as you have ;-)

In a tone of light-hearted levity, I believe.  Definitely not one intending to imply you are a poor Saddo with nothing better to do than play internet games ;-)

Soooo glad you put in the disclaimer!

How many people have received back-handed compliments from you - and haven't recognised them -  do you think?

I don't know, does it?

And why did my mobile choose to wake me up this morning by telling me a voicemail had just arrived - a voicemail which someone left several days ago?  What use is it now?

I like a philosopher with a sense of humour. Ofthemenus would be proud of you -- or is it a serious question?

Humor is good.  ;D  Is that what makes me special: a philosopher with a sense of humor?
